1/1 scale RX-78-2 Gundam @ Diver City (Odaiba) is the main reason I flew to Japan to be pilgrimaged as a Gundam fan. I was so eager to see the 1/1 scale Gundam that I actually ran towards it when nearing Diver City. There was overwhelming joy and the sight was truly speculation. 

Gundam truly is a symbol of hope for the Japan and fans around the world. The 1/1 Gundam is more than just a statue. Some of the parts does move and you will witness it by catching a few timings for the show whereby Gundam OST would be played, Gundam head would turn a bit and smoke released from the valves. It's promising that in future it will do more. It's especially magnificent at night with different colored lightings shining on the Gundam, which gave different viewing experience. 

Looking around big Gundam, you would noticed Gundam cafe and souvenir booth just nearby. Agent S and I had ordered 1/144 Gundam waffles from the friendly staff. I basically roamed around the cafe and booth taking pics. There are some merchandises that were exclusive at Diver City and one item I regretted not buying was the beam saber umbrella. Could not find it at Gundam Cafe else where.

AWESOME !!! i didn’t know it has sound effects as well... you know is like a huge toy, out of the box and although i don’t like electronic gimmicks in a collector figure, i would not mind into have one of these in front of the apartment where i live LOLOLOLOLOL... now, the beam saber umbrellas look kinda girly with the pink translucent cover, but without it are pretty fine !!! =)

Make sure you include Diver City in your Itinerary on your next visit : )

>> chrismandesign
Definitely a huge toy which I wish that time I could climb aboard and play with it. Lolz... Pink on beam saber umbrella cos Gundam beam is pink. That's the original colour. Hehe...

>> LEon
Thank you for dropping by bro. Can bring your son to Disneyland as well if you go Tokyo. It's not too far from Diver City : )

>> M-7
Thank you for visiting... Come again...

>> bluedrakon
Yup, heavy expenses.. I'm still recovering from my burnt pocket. It was a great experience and worth going and hopefully I will make a comeback.

>> Christian Kaw
Yes!!! Epic character and strongest new-type!

deSMOnd said...

is this similar to the one in Hong Kong?

I didn't know that 1/1 rx-78 gundam head can turn a bit.That zaku waffles looks yummy. Beamsabel umbrella?

David John Shewsbury said...

no joke but true, this is quite interesting.... pretty good sightseeing attraction for tourist and Gundam fans specially though I personally would prefer to see Strike Gundam than the old 78...

>> deSMOnd
This is the one and only for this scale. I think HK has a 1/100 scale White Base for exhibition. That's pretty awesome too!

>> Om3ga062012
The Japanese likes adding mechanics and the added feature is something want human look forward to in near future.

My waffle has custard filling and I luv it. ^_^

>> David John Shewsbury
Indeed, it's definitely managed to draw Gundam fans ard the world to take a look, at least for me. Lol... Maybe Strike Gundam isn't as popular but I sure know Freedom Gundam has quite a huge fan base.
